Taking up the challenge from Accidental Deliberations.
I have lately had some issues with the party, nevertheless, to highlight the good;
We need a party which believes that human rights are the fundamental building block of democracy and any functioning society.
We need a party with a strong commitment to women’s rights, up to and including the right to reproductive choice.
We need a party that recognizes that “gay rights” are “human rights” and that who you choose to share your bed with does not make a difference.
We need a party that believes that everyone has an equal right to education, healthcare, a liveable wage.
We need a party that believes that all children have the right to good quality daycare and are willing to put their budget where their beliefs are.
We need a party that doesn’t cause an 11 year old to ask such questions as, why does that party think they should say what I can do just because I’m a girl, or why does that party keep making promises but never keeps them or what does that party stand for?
A party which instead creates comments like, I can’t wait till I’m 12 so I can become a member, how come they are the only party that comes to our door? How come the other candidates won’t talk to me just because I’m a kid?
For all the things we need to change the NDP is still the only party that really represents the values Canadians time after time identify as being important to them.
